City hall. Additional $270,000 sought for two new economic development staffers ALEX BOUTILIER

At a time when most city hall departments are being asked to trim fat, Ottawa’s economic development wing is asking for an additional $548,000. In a 2013 work plan coming before the city’s finance and economic development committee Tuesday, the economic development department proposes a $6.13 million budget. That includes the existing 2012 base budget ($5.58 million) and the department’s 2013 request ($548,000). The majority of the new money sought by the department, around $270,000, would be dedicated to adding two new positions to the sixperson office. Another $200,000 is being requested for preparations for Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary in 2017. A further $50,000 would go to a mural grant program for

Most are continuations of work already begun, such as a partnership with Invest Ottawa and work on a new film, television and digital media studio. Mayor Jim Watson hinted last week that an announcement on that studio, which the city committed $1.5 million in capital spending for, is expected soon. Hollywood ... east?

Murray runs for Ontario Liberal leadership

Ontario Liberal MPP Glen Murray is stepping down from his role as the province’s minister of training, colleges and universities to focus on his bid for the provincial Liberal leadership race. THE CANADIAN PRESS Proper burial

Feds reject most vet funeral pleas A federal burial fund meant to give impoverished veterans a final, dignified salute has rejected over two-thirds of the applications it’s received since 2006. Of the accepted requests, the feds contribute just over $3,600 to the funeral cost of

destitute ex-soldiers, a figure substantially lower than what some social services departments pay towards the burial of the homeless and those on welfare. According to figures put before Parliament, of the 29,853 requests made to the veterans funeral and burial program, 20,147 pleas for funding (67.4 per cent) were rejected. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Former Ontario cabinet minister Glen Murray jumped into the provincial Liberal leadership race Sunday, becoming the first to officially make a play for the party’s top spot. Murray made the announcement a day after stepping down as minister of training, colleges and universities — Premier Dalton McGuinty has said any minister seeking the job must quit cabinet. At a news conference at Maple Leaf Gardens, the Toronto-Centre MPP said he has the experience and ideas to take the reins of the party, which has struggled since forming a minority government.

“This race is about picking someone who has a clear agenda and a premier who is ready.” Glen Murray, Toronto-Centre MPP

“This race is like no other,” Murray, 50, told a crowd of cheering supporters. “The winner of this race will be the premier of a minority government with an opposition set to force an election,” he said. McGuinty announced two weeks ago that he was leaving public office after nine years as

premier and 16 years as party leader. Murray, who was the mayor of Winnipeg from 1998 to 2004, was first elected to the Ontario legislature in a 2010 byelection in Toronto. “I’ve been a big-city mayor. I have successfully led a large government through similar challenges to the ones we face now,” he said, adding he did so by working with people “of all political stripes.” So far, the only other contender for the job is former Municipal Affairs Minister Kathleen Wynne, who gave up her cabinet post earlier this week.

En route to Ottawa from Turkey, more than 3,000 photos sit on Yaman Marwah’s laptop. Since anti-Bashar al-Assad demonstrations started in Syria in March 2011, the 18-year-old student has spearheaded a number of demonstrations and fundraisers in Ottawa echoing the voices of the uprising. Some of the photos show him buying bread and rice to give people in a Qatmeh refugee camp. “The situation is very bad there,” says Marwah. “When we talked to them they said the last time they got bread was 10 days ago.” The next step in his mission is to continue fundraising and demonstrating in Ottawa, but with stronger ammunition — his photographs, videos and first-hand accounts of violence and suffering. “Once people see the footage in the fundraising we do, I guarantee you people are going to donate much, much more than they usually do.” If that happens, he says it will be one of his biggest accomplishments.

School in B.C. polygamous community closes Bountiful. Most students from shuttered school are now taught at home A school in Bountiful, B.C., with links to jailed polygamist leader Warren Jeffs has abruptly closed its doors, with most of its students now relying on home-schooling in a community that has long been accused of using classrooms to

indoctrinate children rather than educate them. Bountiful ElementarySecondary School shut down without explanation in September, the province’s Education Ministry confirms, and nearly all of its former students are being homeschooled. The school, which received provincial funding for some grade levels, had an enrolment of 265 students last year. Bountiful is a small com-

Conservative MP takes aim at CBC access requests St. Albert MP Brent Rathgeber couldn’t disclose all of the details of his private member’s bill Sunday because it won’t go to the House of Commons until Monday afternoon. But he did say he is trying to correct a problem with how the CBC has used an exemption for journalistic and creative activities in dealing with access-to-information requests. “The act as currently written allows the CBC to take sort of a blanket exemption approach that if any (access) requests deal with their journalistic programming or creative activities they just refuse to disclose.” Rathgeber said there should be some sort of test

to see if it would really hurt the broadcaster to release the information. Journalistic sources, event bids and other sensitive information would still be protected, but other items like salaries could still be disclosed. He said courts and the information commissioner have recognized the problem and he just wants to fix it. “This is a problem here, this is not some vendetta or spite I have against the CBC. This is not what this is about at all.” CBC spokesperson Angus McKinnon said the broadcaster would wait to see the bill before commenting on it. Ryan Tumilty/metro in edmonton

National opinion polls showed a race for the popular vote in Tuesday’s election to be so close that only a statistically insignificant point or two separated the two rivals. But the majority of polls in the battleground states — especially in the Midwestern states of Iowa, Wisconsin and Ohio — showed Obama with a slight advantage, giving him an easier path to the 270 electoral votes needed for victory. No Republican has won the White House without carrying Ohio. Making his closing case to voters Sunday in Des Moines, Iowa, Romney pledged, if elected, to work with Democrats to restore the American dream and bring the economy roaring back to life. “We’re Americans.

Israeli land. Palestinian president suggests going home may be a lost cause

Border security. Canada’s unreliable info could harm deal with the U.S.

The Palestinian president has set off a strident debate by shattering a once-inviolable taboo, publicly suggesting his people would have to relinquish claims to ancestral homes in Israel. Mahmoud Abbas’ comments on the refugee issue, made in an interview on Israeli TV over the weekend, triggered hot responses from Palestinians and Israelis alike. In Israel, it suddenly put the long-sidelined issue of peace talks back in the Israeli public’s consciousness ahead of parliamentary elections. Palestinians have maintained for six decades that Arabs forced from their homes during Israel’s creation, as well as their descendants, have the right to reclaim their former property. Israel says a mass return of what could be five million people would spell its end as the Jewish state. Also, Israel rejects the concept of a “right of return.” In the interview, Abbas was asked about his birthplace of Safed — now a town in northern Israel. He told the interviewer that while he would like to visit, he doesn’t claim the

And the other parts is Israel,” Abbas said in English. “I want to see Safed. It is my right to see it, but not to live there,” he said. The comments were widely seen as an acknowledgment that return of all the refugees would be impossible. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wasn’t impressed, noting that Abbas subsequently backtracked. “No one can forfeit the right of return,” Abbas told Egypt’s Al-Hayyat TV on Saturday.

Endangered pay phones prove their worth in emergencies Telecom. While Sandy shows how valuable archaic technology can be, up to 25% of booths in Ontario and Quebec are threatened The events of Superstorm Sandy are raising questions about the importance of pay phones in emergencies, even as two of Canada’s largest telecom companies say they will tear out some public telephones unless they are allowed to sharply raise prices. New Yorkers were forced to turn to their neighbourhood’s coin-operated phones last week as flood waters knocked out power and cellphone reception in areas ravaged by Sandy, the massive storm that swept across the Eastern Seaboard. But a push from Bell Canada and Bell Aliant Inc. could make it harder to find those pay phones in Canada during emergencies.

A proposal to put the latter section of Bronson on a “road diet,” using the opportunity of this year’s reconstruction to shrink it from four lanes to three, thereby slowing down traffic, went nowhere. Accidents happen, and speed is far from the only factor in them, but it undeniably drives up the toll. New York City’s successful road-safety campaign makes much of statistics showing a pedestrian struck by a car at 50 miles per hour has a roughly 80 per cent chance of survival, but at 65 clicks, that likelihood shrivels to 30 per cent. The city’s public-works department, while it has no objections to lowering the limit on Bronson, says the current speeds are about right, given road design and driver behaviour. Anyone not inside a vehicle might disagree. Cyclists often ride illegally on the sidewalk here, and given the choice between paying a fine or swimming with the speeding steel sharks, it’s hard to blame them, but they in turn endanger both pedestrians and themselves. Cutting down speeds on this short-but-dangerous 200metre stretch of road is not expected to seriously slow down anyone’s commute, but putting the brakes on a road built for speed may still be a tough sell to motorists. Drivers may chafe, for example, at sticking to the 60 km/h limit on a gently curving multilane stretch like Aviation Parkway between Ogilvie and Montreal Road. It just seems to cry out for at least 80, but drivers are well advised to watch it, as speed traps are a regular fixture at the entranceway to La Cité Collégiale. Pedestrians crossing there without the benefit of a crosswalk, signal or sign, just illumination from above, provide one very good reason for the limit and strict enforcement. Council is to decide on slowing Bronson down Nov. 14. In the meantime, everyone travelling it by whatever means should remember that it’s not just the speed that gets you. It’s the abrupt, unplanned stop.

Now that’s using your head for cancer support News Worth Sharing Media will always have to report on the tough stuff. But we know that Canada is full of compassionate individuals, inspiring projects and stories worth celebrating. Here’s just one. On Nov. 10, Bahareh Tabrizi will shave her head in a bold effort to raise money for cancer research — a gesture that will honour her late mother,

Rafat, who succumbed to the disease. Tabrizi has been involved in smaller fundraisers in the past, but it was an episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show that inspired her to go bald — when country artist Kellie Pickler spoke about having shaved her head in support of a friend. Tabrizi, whose mother lost her hair while undergoing cancer treatment, was immediately moved to make a personal statement of solidarity.

By shaving her head, she hopes to raise $5,000 to support the Canadian Cancer Society. Having lost her mother to the disease 11 years ago, she knows first-hand the support they provide to cancer patients and their families. As an added incentive, Tabrizi will honour the highest bidder by shaving their initials or company logo onto her head. “Anything to raise more awareness and more funds!”

she said. “The sad truth is that so many have been touched by cancer in one way or another. Together, I hope we can make a difference.” For more information, and to donate, visit Craig and Marc Kielburger

Sally Field stars in Steven Spielberg’s new film Lincoln as Mary Todd, the wife of the assassinated president.


What if Lincoln could send a text message? Lincoln. Sally Field talks about getting to know co-star Daniel Day-Lewis through modern-day means NED EHRBAR

Metro World News in Hollywood

Sally Field didn’t have any rehearsal time for Lincoln, in which she plays Mary Todd Lincoln opposite fellow Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis’ Honest Abe. Luckily, the pair had another way to develop the rapport and sense of intimacy necessary to portray the long-married couple: text messaging. In character. You and Daniel Day-Lewis would text each other, in character, before and during production? I actually kept all the texts. I printed them up, I will keep them forever. They were breathtakingly wonderful and important to me because he kept doing it throughout the whole filming. He would

write me after I’d done big scenes. It meant so much to me, and I will never reveal it. I will never reveal what they are. They are mine, they belong to me — a little like what Mary Todd felt about Mr. Lincoln. She burnt many of his letters. “He belongs to me.” And that relationship belongs to me and I will never share it. But I will talk about the texts. It was so wonderful and so funny, a lot of it. And so concise. You know, we were texting, but as precisely Mr. Lincoln and precisely Mary Todd as we could manage. In the middle of last summer, he took to sending me limericks, and I would answer him by being critical. You know, “Is this the way you spend your time?” And criticize his lack of intelligence and his use of language (laughs). It seems daunting to apply that manner of language to typing with your thumbs on a phone. Yeah. It was really hard to do. It was helped by the fact that I was in the midst of research myself, so I was reading all these letters that were written

of the feeling of the time. The way they used language was incredible. And also [screenwriter] Tony [Kushner]’s words were already being imprinted on my head, so I had some sense of the use of the language, and it was really a challenge much of the time to say what I wanted to say and not lose how it is that it should be said or it would be said at the time. Have you ever done anything like that with a co-star before? You know, I have never done a role that’s this intense and emotional and connected to one human being and never have any rehearsal. We never had any rehearsal. So many of the scenes that you see between Mary and Mr. Lincoln are literally walk on set and do it. And do very few takes. But we had done so much work, he and I, and I think we both have enough miles in the saddle, and the bubble that was created for us by Steven [Spielberg] and by him to stay immersed in this world, it made it very interesting and very challenging — but in a good way

— to work. The difficulty is owning the language. It’s so difficult to say. It must be nice being one of the few people in this film that doesn’t have to worry about outlandish facial hair. No, but I had to worry about other things, like gaining weight. You’ve mentioned Lincoln was very critical of Mary Todd, particularly about her weight. Yes. He would always tease her about that. But he would do it with a sense of humour. It’s in one of the letters. She would always threaten him that she was going to go and find another beau, even when they’d been married a long time. She would always dig it into him, and he said, “Have you weighed yourself ?” It’s in one of the letters. When I did this role, I gained 25 pounds. It was really important to me to get some of that girth. So we didn’t pad anything. You look fantastic now. I haven’t eaten since (laughs).

Modern twist

Texts from Lincoln. As Sally Field explained to Metro, she developed and maintained her relationship with Daniel Day-Lewis while portraying Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln by text messaging each other in character. Of course, Field has vowed to keep the texts to herself, but she did give us a taste of one such message, sent shortly before Day-Lewis began filming: “I know that the task before you is an enormous one, but my task is you. And that is my sole task. And so therefore I will be on your porch tomorrow. Your choice is to let me in or not. And whether you let me in or not, I will not go. In lieu of a carriage, find your shoes.” So how did Day-Lewis, as Lincoln, respond? “He wrote me back graciously and said, ‘OK, fine,’” Field says.

Salman Rushdie revisits his epic tale of India’s independence 31 years later Midnight’s Children. Author says writing screenplay was like having an argument with his younger self


Filming When most hear the name Salman Rushdie, they automatically associate it with fatwa. Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa, or ruling according to Islamic law, against Rushdie in 1988 following the publication of Rushdie’s novel The Satanic Verses. Khomeini’s fatwa ordered for Rushdie’s execution and subsequently the author went into hiding. Today, Rushdie says he rarely feels the effects

Salman Rushdie was only 34 when he won the Booker Prize for his novel Midnight’s Children. That was in 1981. Twenty seven years later, over a dinner with his filmmaker friend Deepa Mehta, he got to talking about movie rights to his storied novel. Right there, Mehta asked to buy the rights. He sold them to her for $1. And so began a collaboration culminating in the release of the film adaptation of his book, which opens in theatres this Friday. Midnight’s Children follows its hero Saleem Sinai, who was born at midnight on Aug.

According to Rushdie, the moment the Sri Lankan president was notified production was shut down, he overturned it and they were able to resumé work. proved an interesting experience for Rushdie as well. “When I started writing Midnight’s Children, I was 28 years old.

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes threatens to sue over latest allegations

Britney Spears. all photos getty images

Amanda Bynes has been accused of engaging in a lot of unstable and unlawful behaviour this year. But apparently she draws the line at an In Touch magazine report that she paraded around a New York tanning salon completely naked, telling Celebuzz in a text message it wasn’t true.

Lawsuit against Spears’ family thrown out of court Britney Spears has one less headache to worry about, as a judge has dismissed former manager Sam Lufti’s case against the singer and her family, according to Hollyscoop. Lufti’s suit had claimed that Spears’ mom defamed

him in her book and her dad assaulted him and that Spears herself owed him nearly $1 million in unpaid wages because of a verbal agreement that he would manage her for a four-year period. Lufti is reportedly planning to appeal.

“That’s not true, I’ll sue.” The story claimed that Bynes emerged from a private tanning room completely naked and looking for a pair of goggles. She “didn’t seem to care that everyone saw her naked,” a source says, adding that Bynes looked “painfully thin.”

Emma Stone

Emma Stone not rushing to the altar anytime soon Emma Stone and her Amazing Spider-Man co-star Andrew Garfield apparently couldn’t be happier together, but that doesn’t mean the world should be expecting engagement news anytime soon.

“There’s no rush to get engaged. They are both young and ambitious,” a source recently told Us Weekly. “They just love spending time together. They are absolutely adorable together.”

Five life lessons I have learned from my toddler Wee ones. Two-yearolds actually have a lot of wisdom to impart HAILEY EISEN

Toddlers are incredible because, for the most part, they exist in a pure and natural state — untainted by society’s expectations, standards and rules. They do what they want, when they want, until someone forces them to stop. They speak their minds and act without inhibition. Adults can learn a lot from them! Here’s what mine has taught me. Be persistent If you want something badly enough, it’s worth going after. Whether this means cajoling, bargaining, pleading or even stomping your feet. Even if someone is standing in the way of making your dream/goal/ desire a reality, a healthy dose of conviction is sometimes all you need to break down that barrier. There’s no talking my daughter out of something once she’s made up her mind. Be in the moment If there’s anyone who can teach us about mindfulness, it’s a tod-

dler. It’s amazing to watch a kid play. It’s as if nothing around them matters. They aren’t worrying about how the week’s weather forecast will interfere with their play dates or what to wear to the family dinner party. Kids live in the moment. They don’t waste any time worrying about things in the future that they have no control over anyway. Let your emotions flow Have you ever watched a twoyear-old process emotions? Mine can go from laughing hysterically, to crying, to sulking, to laughing in a matter of minutes. She expresses her emotions as she feels them, so she’s never at risk of keeping them pent up. She doesn’t know about holding a grudge and the longest she can stay angry with someone is five minutes. Forget what others think Do you ever wonder how you’d live your life if no one was watching? That’s how my child lives every day. It may sound cliché, but it’s totally liberating. I’m taking cues from her and quieting that inner voice that says, “What if they don’t like me? What if they think I look fat?” As my daughter practices her plié sauté on a busy sidewalk wearing a tutu and a mismatched hat with chocolate smeared on her cheek, I have to

ask myself: who cares? And the answer I’m going for is: not me! Love yourself My daughter is happiest when positioned in front of the fulllength mirror in our front foyer. She’ll sing, dance, and have full conversations with herself.

She’s so happy with her own reflection that she never looks upon herself with criticism. This is what we all felt about ourselves when we were kids, before we started listening to the criticism of others. When was the last time you looked yourself in the mirror and felt

Are there real risks to colouring your hair if you’re expecting? KIM FOSTER

Is hair dye harmful to your developing baby? There is a lot of rumour, a lot of urban myth and a lot of confusion out there. First thing to know: There is very limited absorption of the chemicals used in hair dye through your skin. This is true, unless you have burns or open sores on your scalp. Or unless

you’re eating it. Motherisk — the gold-standard source for pregnancy-related information — reviewed 25 studies on the subject of hair treatments and pregnancy, and concluded that hair treatments are “unlikely to cause adverse fetal effects.” There are no known or identified risks or birth defects that have been linked to hair chemicals, and “for the average pregnant woman, receiving hair treatments three to four

times during pregnancy does not appear to increase risk of adverse effects on the fetus.” There are studies that look at hairdressers themselves: A population that is exposed to hair chemicals on a more or less daily basis. One such study compared 550 hairdressers to a control group of women never exposed, and they found “no statistically significant differences in fetal loss, preterm birth, small for gestational-

Bottom line: Colouring your hair when you are pregnant is considered safe. Of course the thing about research is that there’s always new stuff coming to light. Although this is how things look right now, I cannot promise that we will never find any data that contradicts the basic position that colouring your hair is safe. So what to do? You have to weigh things for yourself. It’s important to feel good about yourself when you’re pregnant. Maybe, for you, that means taking particular care of your appearance and colouring your hair. Maybe for you that means not having to worry about a potential, unknown risk. It has to be up to you.

Movember expands scope to include mental health issues

Gilbert Ndikubwayezu

In the next few weeks, you may see many men developing their whiskers in an exceptional way. It’s Movember ­ — a combination of moustache and November ­— a time when men grow a moustache during the whole month of November. By doing so, you participate in an awareness campaign against males’ most pressing health issues, notably prostate cancer. The worldwide campaign culminates in a multitude of fundraising parties, with proceedings going to programmes dedicated to fighting against prostate cancer

and males’ mental health. Participation in Movember requires a guy to register for the campaign, with a completely shaved face starting on November 1. The ultimate objective is to instill, throughout the month, discussions in all walks of life about the often ignored issues facing males’ health. Since its inception in 2004, Movember activities have spread around the world. Canada joined the movement in 2007 and this year such activities will be held in 21 countries. In 2011, as many as 854,000 Canadians participated, raising $125.7 million for the Movember Foundation.

In the spirit of continuing to address crucial issues that affect men’s health, Movember has expanded its scope of campaign to include males’ mental health. Mental health problems affect 3.4 million Canadian males each year, said Pete Mbombaci, national director of Movember Canada, as he explained the reasons why the movement decided this year to include mental health in its campaign activities. In other words, one-infive Canadian men is affected by mental health issues. This trend raises the rate of suicide among men. Despite the lower cases of depression reported, it has emerged that four out five suicides among young Canadian people are committed by men. These alarming numbers are what prompted the Movember foundation to include mental health in its awareness campaign this year, Mbombaci said. “This is an important step in the evolution of Movember as we’re able to continue to address critical men’s health issues,” he said, adding that the goal is to get people to have discussions about it to reduce stigma and discrimination associated with it. Movember intends to partner with other existing organizations in the

There’s magic in your mistakes: success as defined by a Dragon Telling it like it is. W. Brett Wilson tackles the tough side of getting to the top Elizabeth beddall

Dragons’ Den co-star and Risky Business host W. Brett Wilson became one of Canada’s top investment bankers, but learned the hard way that financial success and the respect of business peers can come at the price of losing health, family and friends. In his new book Redefining Success, which is in stores tomorrow, Wilson tells the story of hitting the big-time financially while hitting rock-bottom personally, and what led him to redefine his life. Metro caught up with Wilson to chat about success, business savvy and what it truly means to be satisfied. If we’re being completely honest, does one’s personal life have to suffer at least marginally in order to climb the professional ladder? Yes, there are sacrifices for sure because we can only do one thing at time and we have competing demands on our time. That simply drives home the relevance of setting priorities to steward ones time with. What are three key warning signs that you are not balancing work and life properly? There are many warning signs, but at the personal level when you aren’t allo-

cating time to your health, your family and your friends ... quite simply you are not balancing life and work very well. If I were hoping to get you to invest in my small business idea, what could I tell you that would make you back out immediately? If you told me the idea was new and you thought it was worth a “flyer” I would question for passion, for the concept and ability and interest in following through — meaning I am gonzo! What has been the biggest risk you’ve ever taken in your professional life and did it yield positive or negative results? The biggest risk I ever took, in the eyes of my family and friends and peers, was starting FirstEnergy — the energy-focused brokerage firm — as the entrepreneur. I was comfortable with the risk (it was my life’s focus after all), but there were many doubters. Did it work out? Financially it was a success. Personally, it absorbed every waking hour, to the

like you achieved success wholly and completely? Success is hard to measure, therefore it’s hard to respond to the question.

Have I achieved success? The last line in my book offers: “A successful man is one who has earned the respect and admiration of

others.” I would add, “especially that of his children.” On that basis — I hope I have achieved success. I know my life’s work is far from done.

Have you been dreaming in digital? Careers

Educating the e-world. Graduates in this growing field don’t just know their gear, they get the global picture

Where do I go from here? Cynthia Baron tells us what jobs digital media students wind up in?

bruce walsh

“Interactive design, game design, web design, handheld media products, digital video, photography, 3D animation, web-based journalism. But, often, people come to us from specific fields — programming, engineering, art, design, communications, teaching — and they’re looking to go back with a new skill set,” she says.

Cynthia Baron directs the master of professional studies in digital media program at Northeastern University in Boston, Mass. Like most graduate degrees of this kind, the Northeastern program only emerged in the past few years. She sat down with Metro to discuss this budding field of study. Digital media studies are relatively new to the landscape of graduate degrees. Why have so many schools developed these programs? I think it’s pretty obvious that it’s market-driven in the sense that more and more of our lives are touched by digital technology.

Could you turn your fascination with computers into a full-time career? istock

There’s a big difference between understanding how to use a piece of software and why you would design it that way. And, when you put different processes together, it becomes very complicated. There wasn’t a place to

study this in any one academic discipline. Schools wanted to look at this phenomenon as a whole, instead of trying to do it piecemeal with added classes here and there in other areas of study.

What’s the biggest misconception about graduatelevel degrees in digital media? People say, “Why do you need a degree in digital media? Couldn’t I just take courses to learn how to use

software?” You could, but that doesn’t make you a digital media professional. That’s like me saying I know how to use Microsoft Word, so that makes me a writer. Are there fellowship

opportunities in this field of study? Fellowships in these areas are hard to come by. Most programs that do provide fellowships or TA positions offer them to a small number of students. The vast majority of students in digital media fund their education through student loans.

He founded 18 Waits, and now his clothing and accessories are featured in highend North American stores, like Holt Renfrew, and around the world in China, Japan and the United Arab Emirates. I knew I was on my way when... we brought our collection to sell at a very well regarded trade show in Paris and New York and it was incredibly well-received. We showed alongside the best brands in the world for buyers who came from all over the world and everyone loved our brand and collection.

It was pretty exciting as the people who walk these shows are educated, skilled and acutely aware of what’s happening in the fashion world on an international level. And we fit right in. Action Plan • Be well organized. It’s so easy for things to get out of hand — and quickly — when starting a business. Set up a good system of organization right off the bat so you’re off to a good start and not trying to clean up messes down the road. • Surround yourself with the right people. Don’t have an ego about it. Find great people to work with and let them do what

they’re best at without getting in their way. • Don’t give up. It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in; starting and running your own business is not easy. But if your goal or dream is to do it then all the work is worth it. Don’t get frustrated by small failings or not succeeding as fast as you would have hoped. It takes a few years for a business to really find its legs and start working. Lastly, work your ass off. Because that’s what it takes to make it work. If you love what you do — which I do — the work is fun and exciting, as opposed to laborious and boring. Love what you do and then work your ass off doing it.

French Toast gets a healthy facelift from multi-grain bread Nutritional analysis

Rose Reisman for more, visit

Per one slice • 107 calories; 6.3 g

Pancake houses serve delicious French toast, cooked in loads of oil and smothered with butter and maple syrup. Delicious, but it’s not healthy or low in fat. My version is delicious and healthy. Using the egg substitute lowers fat, calories and cholesterol.

1. Whisk the eggs, milk, cin-

namon and vanilla together in a shallow bowl until well Ingredients • 1/2 cup egg substitute or 2 large eggs • 3 egg whites • 1/3 cup low-fat milk • 1 tsp ground cinnamon • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract • 4 slices multi-grain bread • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup • 1 tbsp sifted icing sugar • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries

This recipe serves four. Brian MacDonald, from Rose Reisman’s Complete Light Kitchen (Whitecap Books)

Night Before Scrambled Eggs. Start today, finish tomorrow morning

1. In saucepan, melt 15 ml (1 tbsp) of butter. Whisk in flour and salt. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Bring mix to simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Add 300 ml (1 1/4 cups) Ingredients • 45 ml (3 tbsp) butter or margarine, divided • 22 ml (1 1/2 tbsp) all-purpose flour • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt • 300 ml (1 1/4 cups) milk • 425 ml (1 3/4 cups) shredded cheddar cheese, divided • 75 ml (1/3 cup) finely chopped onion • 250 ml (1 cup) sliced mushrooms • 12 eggs

of cheese, stirring until melted. Set aside.

2. In frying pan, melt remain-

ing 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter. Add mushrooms and onion; sauté until tender.


Whisk eggs. Add eggs to mushroom-onion mixture. Cook until eggs are just set but still a little wet. Stir cheese sauce into egg mix. Spoon mix into a greased 23-cm (9-inch) square baking pan or 2.5-l casserole. Sprinkle remaining 125 ml (1/2 cup) cheese over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

4. The next morning, uncover and bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven until heated through and cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes. The Canadian Press/ Egg Farmers of Ontario

Sometimes getting a fresh breakfast on the table without being late for work or school isn’t possible. But be careful with the alternatives.

Aunt Jemima Croissant Egg Sandwich 350 calories/ 23 g fat Egg and cheese are the only safe items in this frozen breakfast. The croissant and sausage contain the majority of calories and fat.

Equivalent blended. Dip a piece of bread into the mixture, making sure both sides are moistened. Do not leave the bread in the mixture for too long or the bread will fall apart. Repeat with another slice of bread.

One Aunt Jemima Croissant Egg Sandwich is equal in fat to almost six marshmallow dream bars from Starbucks.


Spray a large non-stick skillet with vegetable oil and place over medium heat. Cook 2 pieces at a time, browning each side, a total of about 5 minutes.


Garnish with a sprinkling of icing sugar, a drizzle of maple syrup and sliced strawberries. Rose Reisman’s Complete Light Kitchen (Whitecap Books) by Rose Reisman

Breakfast faves meet in Skillet Blueberry Muffin Pancakes What do you do when you are hankering for blueberry muffins, but don’t have a muffin pan handy? Well, you can cook them the same as you would pancake batter, in a skillet, using the muffin batter. Why not just make blueberry pancakes? To answer that, look at the differences between pancake and muffin batters. Though recipes will vary, most pancake and muffin recipes call for equal amounts of flour and eggs. But while pancakes call for more liquid, muffins get more sugar, fat and baking powder. So while muffin batter Ingredients For the muffins • 2 cups all-purpose flour • 1/2 cup sugar • 1 tbsp baking powder • 1 tsp cinnamon • 1/2 tsp salt • Zest of 1 lemon • 1 cup milk • 1 egg • 2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil • 1 tsp vanilla extract • 1 cup fresh blueberries For the topping • 2 tbsp brown sugar • 2 tbsp cinnamon

cooked in a skillet may resemble a pancake, the taste is all muffin. You can even top the muffins with a blend of cinnamon-sugar. This caramelizes beautifully when you flip them. And while muffins can take half an hour to bake, these pancake-style muffins cook up in just minutes.

1. In bowl, stir flour, sugar, bak-

ing powder, cinnamon, salt and lemon zest. In separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, oil and vanilla.

2. Add liquid ingredients to the

dry, then stir just until a batter forms. Gently stir in the blueberries. Set aside.


In small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon.


Heat skillet over medium. Coat with cooking spray, reduce heat to low, then ladle batter into the skillet, using about 1/3 cup per muffin. Do not crowd the pan, as muffins will spread. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with a bit of the topping. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until risen and browned on the bottom. Use a spatula to flip and cook for another 2 to 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. The Associated Press

Marathon meeting offers hope for lockout talks The conversation is flowing again between the NHL and NHL Players’ Association. A marathon meeting between deputy commissioner

Bill Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr stretched from Saturday afternoon into the early hours of Sunday morning, and was followed by some encouraging news: The sides expect to return to the bargaining table again soon. “We met on and off for most of the day and covered a lot of ground,” Daly told The Canadian Press via email. “We plan to meet again early in the week.” Daly and Fehr got togeth-

er at an undisclosed location in an effort to shield themselves from the media spotlight and start finding a way forward in negotiations. The session included “good, frank discussion on the most important issues separating us,” according to Daly. It represented a significant departure in protocol from the last few months, when the parties rarely sat down together for more than an hour or two at a time. The meeting was also unique

because it included just the No. 2 men from the league and union, perhaps offering a harbinger of better times ahead (Daly and former NHLPA deputy Ted Saskin laid the groundwork for the deal that ended the 2004-05 lockout). There was certainly a positive feeling in the air afterwards, with Fehr saying in a statement that he agreed with how Daly summed up the session. “Hopefully we can con-

tinue the dialogue, expand the group, and make steady progress,” added Fehr. There had been no signs of progress since the sides last met in mid-October. In fact, the news had all been negative, with a deadline to salvage an 82-game season passing, the NHL calling off all games through Nov. 30 and an announcement Friday that the Jan. 1 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium was being postponed, likely until next season.

Formula 1

Title race open after Raikkonen wins in Abu Dhabi Kimi Raikkonen won a crash-filled Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday for his first victory since returning to Formula One this year, a result which throws open the drivers’ championship with two races remaining. Raikkonen, the 2007 champion who drives for Lotus, overtook Red Bull’s Mark Webber at the start to move into second. He took the lead on the 20th lap when McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton retired because of an electrical problem. Raikkonen held off Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who finished second. Two-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel clawed back from last to finish third, his lead over Alonso cut to 10 points. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Golf

Raptors pound Timberwolves to rack up first win of season Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan each scored 22 points, Alan Anderson had 18 and the Toronto Raptors earned their first victory of the season Sunday night, beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 105-86. Andrea Bargnani scored 10 points as the Raptors extended Minnesota’s miserable record against Toronto. The Raptors have won 15 of the past 16 meetings, including nine straight at home. Minnesota has not won in Toronto since Jan. 21, 2004. Andrei Kirilenko scored 17 points and Nikola Pekovic had 15 for the Timberwolves, who were outscored 26-13 in the fourth quarter, making just four of 16 fieldgoal attempts.

Derrick Williams had nine points and eight rebounds for Minnesota, which is without injured forward Kevin Love (broken hand) and guard Ricky Rubio (left knee). Winless in two games coming in, Toronto was playing for the second straight night. The Raptors lost 107100 at Brooklyn on Saturday night, the Nets’ first game in their new home.

The Raptors scored 27 points off of 16 Minnesota turnovers in the first half, and got seven points from Lowry in a 12-4 run over the final 3:10 of the second quarter to open a 56-47 lead at the intermission. The Timberwolves took better care of the ball in the third quarter, committing just three turnovers and cutting the deficit to 79-73 heading into the fourth. Kirilenko scored seven points in the third and Pekovic had six. Landry Fields opened the fourth with a dunk and Toronto scored nine of the first 12 points of the quarter, opening an 88-76 lead on Anderson’s three-pointer with 8:47 left. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

March 21 - April 20 Someone will introduce you to a new idea today and while it may be a bit uncomfortable you will benefit intellectually. But don’t get too radical in your thinking: the answers you seek are mainly in the middle ground.


April 21 - May 21 Unexpected developments will throw up new challenges and opportunities over the next few days. Are you ready for them? Are you willing to adapt? Only those who know how to think and act fast will gain in the long-term.


May 22 - June 21 Your ability to visualize what it is you want to accomplish will make things easy for you this coming week. Others may say you are chasing rainbows, and maybe you are, but at least you have a dream of some sort.


June 22 - July 23 Although you may want to comfort someone who has a whole load of personal problems don’t make it look as if you condone their negative behavior. Overall, they have only themselves to blame. Sad but true.


July 24 - Aug. 23 If you don’t ask you won’t get, so speak up and let others know what it is you want from them. Their response may not be entirely positive but it won’t be entirely negative either. You’ll get something at least.


Aug. 24 - Sept. 23 The planets warn there is still a lot of work to be done to get from where you are now to where you most want to be. The good news is you have a clearly defined goal and can start working towards it.

Sept. 24 - Oct. 23 You won’t be short of ideas and you won’t be short of opinions. The one thing you may be short of is the ability to see that not everyone thinks the same way as you. What happened to your Libra sense of balance?


Oct. 24 - Nov. 22 Try not to lapse into negative patterns of behavior, especially where money matters are concerned. If you think you are going to lose out in some way your thoughts will create circumstances that are likely to make it happen.


Nov. 23 - Dec. 21 Some people seem to think that your main task in life is to look after them. It’s about time you let them know it isn’t true. Cut off assistance today and let them fend for themselves. In the long-term it will do them good.
